Das mobile Web brummt, und so wird es nicht mehr lange dauern, bis mehr Internetnutzer mit Smartphones und Tablets aufs Web zugreifen als mit Desktop-Rechnern. Für Webdesigner kann das nur eines bedeuten: die Ärmel hochkrempeln und ab ins mobile Web! Dieses Buch zeigt Ihnen, wie Sie mit gängigen Webtechnologien mobile Websites und Apps erstellen, die sich sehen lassen können - und das ganz unabhängig davon, ob mit einem Android-Smartphone, einem iPhone oder einem Tablet-PC auf sie zugegriffen wird. Dabei kommen moderne Ansätze wie Responsive Webdesign und smarte Technologien wie WURFL, HTML5, jQuery Mobile und PhoneGap zum Einsatz. Das Buch beschäftigt sich darüber hinaus mit wichtigen strategischen Fragen: Reicht es, eine Website aufs Smartphone zu bringen oder muss eine eigene mobile Website her? Brauchen wir eine Web-App oder soll auf native Features der Mobilgeräte zugegriffen werden? Wieso sieht dieses Buch so anders aus? Wir glauben, dass Sie Besseres verdient haben, als sich im Alleingang durch neuen Stoff zu kämpfen. Anstatt Sie mit länglichen Bleiwüstentexten langsam in den Schlaf zu wiegen, haben wir ein visuell und inhaltlich abwechslungsreiches Buch zusammengestellt, in das die neuesten Erkenntnisse der Kognitionswissenschaft und der Lerntheorie eingeflossen sind.
